The car suddenly swerved off track as the driver maneuvered the vehicle back to its original path. “It was a green snake, and we aren’t supposed to kill them. Evil will befall if we do so”, said Uddhav or Uddab as he called himself. My driver for the entire trip Uddhav a reticent fellow was from Assam. I had left early morning from Bhalukpong towards Bomdila in Arunachal Pradesh.
APPROACH & ACCOMODATION The Prashanti Lodge is based in Bhalukpong town towards the Assam state. I stayed in this hotel when I was returning from Arunachal Pradesh. This town lies in both the states and I found the concept very amusing. The approach to Prashanti Lodge is quite easy as it is very close to the main road. The last 100 meters though is not very appealing as you pass through garbage. It would help if this area is cleaned and made more appealing.
